    ((IMPORTANT OOC NOTES: All items should be RP/novelty/silly items and not actual rares/valuables as they will NOT be secure. The sillier the better! This is not a "proper" auction--it's all in good fun and you can expect things to be weird and messy. Just enjoy it! It will be essentially the same as the Pitmuck Auction... please check that thread for details if you did not attend.))

    After the last Vesper Auction, one particularly colorfully dressed auctiongoer approached me to ask that I pass on the following information about an unusual auction to take place nearby in the burgeoning gypsy town of Pike. She even showed me the gypsy wagon parked in Pike just for the occasion. The following announcement is from Stevie the gypsy:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Come one, come all, to the first ever Gypsy Barter Auction!

    At this auction, sellers will submit and describe their own items. Attendees will offer up whatever they are willing to trade for the seller's item, and the seller will choose his or her favorite bid for a trade.

    Space is limited to 15 sellers, 1 item/lot per seller. Please reply to this message to reserve a spot, or contact Stevie the gypsy in game or via ICQ at 1234 98 286.


    Our inaugural auction will be held, appropriately enough, in the growing gypsy town of Pike, located near Dungeon Covetous centrally located between Vesper, Minoc, and Cove!

    The quickest way to reach it is to use a corrupted crystal portal to go to Dungeon Covetous, then run northwest along the mountain a short distance. There will also be a rune in the Vesper Auction House.

    Friday, May 1st at 8M ET!

    Are we still limited to one lot per seller? Or should we bring two just in case?

    Go ahead and bring what you want... we will go in order of signups so that everyone who signed up will get at least one turn, then run extras. :)

    (posted with permission)

    Stevie had written to King Sev of Pike to invite him to the event, and apparently just missed his courier as she found this message awaiting her just afterward:

    ----------------------------

    My dear subject!

    Word has reached me of Pike's expansion beyond the mountains and of your auction to be held this eve.
    It gladdens my heart to hear my city continues to thrive whilst I recover from my injuries, and yet, I am saddened that I cannot attend in person. My injuries are yet to heal fully, and I am advised not to return until they do.

    I thank you for your kind words. I too hope to recover soon and return to my people. Pike needs me if it is to flourish!

    I commend your efforts in the holding of this event, and also, in the creation of your wagon. My loyal guard enclosed a drawing of what you have created - I am particularly fond of the colour choices!

    When I return I will hold a carnival to celebrate Pike and I make sure to come and see your wagon in person then.

    Luck be with you.

    Your most benevolent ruler,
    King Sev.
